Current News & Information

 

Important Events and Dates 2018/2019

After many years as an officer of Post 27, Joe DeGray has retired.  Laura Flint, a post member and veteran of the Vermont Army National Guard who served overseas in Enduring Freedom, has been elected as Post Commander.  While she is relatively new to the Legion Family, she is a young and energetic individual, passionate about veterans and their welfare.  She is a local business owner (Subway & UPS Store) and a former bookkeeper and auditor.  She has many ideas on how to get younger members active in the post.  Stop in and meet Laura, or better yet stop in at a meeting (4th Monday of the month at 7:00 PM)….  Attend, Contribute and Be Involved

   


SCHOLARSHIPS AWARDED:

In  June  the Annual  Scholarships were awarded to college bound graduating seniors from Middlebury Union High School.  The Post 27 American Legion Family awarded over $21,000.

BOYS STATE:

Post 27 sponsored ten young men from Middlebury Union High School to attend Boys State in 2018 and they attained a significant amount of the leadership positions while attending.

MEMBERSHIP:  Dues $40  as of July 1, 2017
Membership in Post 27 is going down each and every year as many of our older members pass on to Post Everlasting.  It is not that there are no eligible individuals out there.  Virtually all of our National Guard and Reservists are eligible for membership.  We all have to work together to keep our post strong.  Each member is a recruiter so do your job and talk up the legion and refer new members.  If you know of someone who would be eligible let us know.  Call the post at 388-9311 with the contact information and we will do the rest......Please Help......

NOTICE:
Help is always needed for Bingo on Wednesday evenings and for the Honor Guard.  There is a high potential for both of these important functions being discontinued due to the lack of help and support.  The bingo is a major source of funding for the annual scholarships awarded by the Post, SAL, and Auxiliary.  One Wednesday evening every four weeks or so would be a great help and ensure that our weekly bingo continues. 


COFFEE:
The Post has a single cup coffee brewer which is now at the bar with various types of coffee available for your enjoyment and convenience.


BENEFITS CALCULATOR:
There is now an online benefits calculator for veterans on the Legion web site.  Go to http://www.legion.org/benefitscalculator/


PLEASE NOTE THAT THE BINGO JACKPOT IS NOW $1,000 PER STATE REGULATIONS
